LatexRender is a set of scripts that allows one to call LaTeX from PHP programs; in particular, this allows users to enter LaTeX commands in a forum and, on posting, have it replaced by a suitable gif or png. LatexRender requires LaTeX and ImageMagick to be installed. The open source PHP code was originally designed for use with phpBB, but it can be adapted for use with other PHP programs. Details and example installations may be found in the maintainer's home page.
